Home Learning Information
In Year 2, the children are given their orange homework books each Friday. It is better to think along the lines of 'little and often' and as some families prefer to work with their children on weeknights and others weekends, you'll have more freedom as to when your child completes homework with you. The more notes that you make on your child's work, the more we get from it. Please return completed homework by the following Wednesday. There is a letter in the inside cover explaining expectations and also there is a copy of the Year 2 Common Exception Words that children need to read and spell by the end of year 2! Spellings are sent home each week in addition and children should aim to read with an adult at home, three times a week.
Think about the following questions...
• How much of the work was done independently?
• Was there something you struggled to help them understand?
• Was it too easy?
• Were you unsure of how we teach something in class?
If you'd like more guidance, please ask!
In this topic children will be learning all about plants and mini beasts we focus all of our learning around this topic and try to read, write and explore it in different ways. There will be lots of science learning and we will be looking closely at little critters during a mini beast hunt and will also explore the life cycle of plants. We will plant our very own vegetables and we will cook up a vegetable soup made from potatoes, butternut squash, carrots and onions. There is lots of lovely things for us to do in this topic and we are really excited to learn all about it with you.
In maths we will be focusing on partitioning numbers, number bonds to 10/20 and addition and subtraction facts/strategies.
We will update the page with more information soon to show you how our topic is coming along.
